(1) Can anyone tell if they are able to use bluetooth? is there any bluetooth support on the box, anyone has a dongle that is working with the latest fimware?
(2) Is there any way to see what firmware the MB has? apart from the sticker on the back. Can someone post pictures?
For most Android boxes that I've read about (and for the two that I have), if they don't come with built-in bluetooth then they probably don't have out-of-the-box support for a USB bluetooth dongle. However, it's possible to use one, but it seems you need to flash your box with a custom Android FW version that has bluetooth enabled.
So search around for general USB bluetooth support for the box. There's a good chance that someone has already set this up and has written up how to do it for others. Once you have general bluetooth support then bluetooth remotes/keyboards should then work inside XBMC. If for some reason it doesn't work in XBMC (like you want to use a bluetooth game controller) then you can probably use something like Bluez IME from the Google Play store (after you have general bluetooth support working, that is).
